Hello!

Is there any other solution I can use instead of delays?

..And what if I want to delay each int from a list, one after the other?

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Hey guys!

Thank you for the advices!

I really like your examples! I’ll try to implement them!

What I really wanted to do was to actually iterate a whole phrase, letter by letter and know when each word finishes and another one starts! So I could easily write, one letter at a time, and one word on a single row on jit.lcd (or jit.gl.text2d or jit.gl.text3d)

But as I didn’t know how, I changed the letters with ascii code with the help of jit.str.fromsymbol and then iterate that (and SPACE being 32 in ascii code I always knew when a new word was to start).

Do you know any other simpler solution to do that?

Now I am trying to intergate what you sent me! Thanks again!

By the way, do you know how to draw letters with a square under it and with which object! So each letter that is drawn is framed by a painted rectangle 1 or 2 pixels bigger than the letter itself!

Now I am trying to do this in jit.lcd, but with so many letters (100-200 letters), I figure there will be lots of coding and they might tax processor big time!

Simpler solutions, anyone?

PS: I was also thinking about using poly or jit.gl.multiple, but for something so precise (meaningful words, not random), I guess they are out of the question! Right?
